Want to get rid of the toxins in your house and don’t know where to start? Here’s what I did and some diffusing tips to help get you started…
About 8 years ago I began to stop using toxic scented candles and room deodorizers. You know those fancy plug in types from the fancy soap, lotion stores in the Mall? Well anyway my endless need of researching lead me to the world of neurotoxins and what harm they may be doing to our brains and overall health.
Cleaning up and detoxing our home became a mission that I was determined to accomplish. Cleaning routines changed from Mr Clean to white vinegar and unscented castile soap. At first thought our home was kind of smelling like a pickle jar somedays but I didn’t mind… I really like pickles anyway! My family is easy they may kid and joke but they always know I have their best interest at heart.
Well then came along essential oils, which totally fit in our non-toxic new healthy home and lifestyle! Diffusing essential oils not only makes our home smell lovely, but they can provide other health benefits as well.
How many diffusers can one person have?
Adding citrus oils into our cleaning has brought a wonderful aroma into our home and cleaning days! Even better is the fact that we now have diffusers dispensing essential oils all over our home (honestly I have lost count of how many diffusers I have!) I always use the cool air water based diffusers since heating the oils is a no no and can damage some of their beneficial properties. For that reason I would never recommend using the candle warmers or any method that might heat the oils too much. Cool air diffusers are the best and safest way to preserve all the beneficial properties and enjoy their beautiful aromas.
If you are new to using essential oils there is no better way to get used to using them than through using a diffuser. Need some diffusing tips? Try some of my favorite diffuser recipes by downloading my free e-book with tons of great recipes to get you started!
- The following blends are meant to be used in a cool air diffuser. These diffusers usually require a small amount of water to be added, along with the oils.
- Follow the manufacturers directions on your diffuser.
- If you don’t have one of the oils called for in the recipe, you can still try the recipe without it or substitute something you have that sounds good to you!
